We need to find numbers: b and d such that: x + 4x − 77 = (x b)(x d) where b ⋅ d = 77 and b − d = 4 (the difference since the constant coefficient −77 < 0). We find: b = 7 and d = 11. Since the constant coefficient is −77 < 0, the signs in front of b and d are different. Since the x coefficient is 4 > 0, the sign in front of the larger number 11 is positive. 2

We have: x + 4x − 77 = (x − 7)(x + 11).
